Try uninstalling the graphics driver from the system, and reseating the graphics card. When installing graphics drivers, it is always a good idea to do a clean install and then immediately reboot. There is also a very slight chance that there is card damage. What graphics card are you using?

Just roll back the driver to an earlier version.

I am using a PNY GTX 770 just a few months old. And the problems stared after I unistalled 331.65. I am tryed to install 320.49 and it kept saying that I don't have the hardware to support this software or something.

Again, try uninstalling all traces of any nVidia driver, and reseating the card. Make sure the monitor is plugged into the graphics card, and reinstall the last driver that worked for you.

Have you tried reseating the card as the other poser suggested?

Thank you fr the replies but I think I have it stable again. It finally allowed me to remove the older drivers completly. Before it only removed some things and I got error messages when trying to remove the others. But after they were all gone I reinstalled 320.49 and rebooted and it seems okay. All in all since july I had like 10 errors in y perfromance log(cautions) and jsut in the last hour I have had 13 just from doing what I did with that driver installation. If anyone has this issue with 331.65 and finds a solution to make it work let me know. Thanks guys....until I screw something else up...Bit of a noob

a lot of people seem to be having problems with 331 drivers (me included). As mentioned above - uninstall latest driver and re-install previous one that worked. Then wait a week or two and se if they bring out yet another new" driver. Nvidia seem to be bringing them out fairly frequently lately. Good luck.
